In the days when a good set
of jugs carried a lot more im-
portance, Michigan and Minne-
sota began a tradition of award-
ing a water jug to the winner of
its yearly clash.
Actually, the origin of the Lit-
tle Brown Jug (LBJ) trophy dates
back to 1903 and Fielding Yost's
point-a-minute teams. The Wol-
verines were playing at Minnesota
in a crucial game, which ended in
a 6-6 tie.
In the chaotic post game ac-
tivity, the Michigan equipment
men forgot to pack the water
jug which was used by the play-
ers in those days before Gator-
ade and plastic squeeze bottles.
Upon reaching Ann Arbor, the
mistake was discovered and Yost
asked the Gophers to send the
jug back.
Minnesota's teasing reply was
to 'come and get it.' And, when
Michigan emerged victorious in
the teams' next meeting, they left
Minneapolis with the jug in hand.
And from that day on, the jug be-
came the traditional symbol of
victory in the Michigan-Minne-
sota clash.
At various junctures during the
68 year rivalry, possession of the
LBJ was the only point of inter-
est in the games, however, no
such artificial stimulation will be
needed for the teams in today's
Michigan, obviously concerned
with maintaining its undefeated
status, will be out to improve
upon last week's performance
when, according to coach Bo
Schembechler, the Wolverines

"made more mistakes than in our
previous five games."
For Minnesota, now 2-1 in Big
Ten competition, today's game
will either give its conference title
hopes a huge boost, or snuff out
all reasonable championship asr
The Gophers, blessed with a po-
tent offense, plagued by a porous
defense, depend on quarterback
Craig Curry and fullback Ernie
Cook to make their team move.
The Michigan - Minnesota
game begins at 1:30 and will
be carried over radio stations
WWJ, 950 AM; WPAG, 1050
91.7 FM; and WCBN, 650 AM.
The success these two senior stal-
warts achieve against a Michi-
gan defense ranked first national-
ly against the rush and second
against scoring should serve as an
accurate bellwether for the pro-
pects of the entire team.
Curry, the total offense leader
in the Big Ten in 1970, and this
year's leader after three confer-
ence games is, according to
Schembechler, both a "fine passer
and option runner." Cook led the
Gophers in rushing last season
with over 500 yards and, at 224
pounds, isn't shy about running
through the middle.
Much stronger than the Minne-

sota ground game, however, is its
passing attack where Curry's
chief targets are Cook, wide re-
ceiver Kevin Hamm and tight end
Doug Kingsriter. The Gophersf
aerial game is probably the fin-
est one Michigan will face prior
to the Purdue game November 14.
The relative measure of success
Michigan State enjoyed against
the Michigan secondary two
weeks ago to be sure hasn't been
overlooked by Minnesota coach
Murray Warmath, and the Go-
phers can be expected to waste
little time before going to the air
against the Wolverines.
If the Michigan secondary has
been a little leaky recently, the
Minnesota deep backs have been
human sieves. A rotating group
of non-lettering returnees have
staked out the corner positions
and the safety spot, while senior
Mike Perfetti, who saw just over
100 minutes of action last year,
partly as a punter, will play the
monster back spot.
Perfetti's major claim to fame
this year has been putting Purdue
quarterback Gary Danielson out
of action for two weeks with a jar-
ring tackle two weeks ago. The
Wolverine passing attack, rela-
tively quiescent so far this sea-
son, may meet with good success
if they choose to challenge the
Gophers' secondary.
However, if patterns established
through the first six games hold,
a thorough probing of the Min-
nesota rushing defense can be ex-
pected before any serious passing
Defensive end Curtis Mayfield
and his colleagues on the defen-
sive line may be ready to sing
the blues before Michigan backs
Billy Taylor and Ed Shuttles-
worth are finished hitting the line
with their customary elan.
B.T. will be going after Ron


Johnson's alltime Michigan rush-
ing record today, needing only
78 yards to go over the top, and,
judging from past performance,
the Minnesota defense can be ex-
pected to be quite obliging.
The strong point of the Minne-
sota defense is captain Bill Light.
Described by Schembechler as "a
great linebacker", Light should
prove an interesting comparison
to Michigan cruncher Mike Tay-
lor, often referred to by Schem-
bechler as the best linebacker in
the nation.
Warmath and his squad have
no delusions about the task be-

fore them. "We know we're play-
ing a nationally ranked and na-
tionally prominent team this
week," said Warmath. "As far as
I am concerned, Michigan -is more
than equal to any other ranked
college team."
The Gophers have had exper-
ience with highly ranked teams
before, losing to top ranked Ne-
braska in the second week of the
season, and they shouldn't be
holding the Wolverines in awe.
The game is too important for
either team to ease up and the
players won't have to think about
Jugs to get up for this encounter.

-Daily-Rolfe Tessem
BILLY TAYLOR (42) sweeps around right end in last week's Michigan victory over Illinois. Apparent-
ly recovered from the shoulder injury he suffered against Michigan State, Taylor rushed for 103 yards
against the Illini, strengthening his bid for AllAmerican honors. The 35-6 romp was the Wolverines'
sixth straight win.


It was just last Nov. 28, when
the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame
last took on the South California
Trojans. The Irish were unbeaten,
looking for their first national
championship since 1966, and ex-
pected to blow USC, having one of
its poorest seasons in recent
years; out of the stadium.
But a funny thing happened
on the way to the Notre Dame
rout-the South. Cal. offense rose'
up and overwhelmed the surprised
Notre Dame defense and the re-
sult was a 38-28 Trojan win,
which, eventually was the differ-
ence between the number one and
two rankings for the Irish.
Today the same two teams will
go at it- again at South Bend, un-
der much the same circumstances.
Notre Dame is again unbeaten,
ranked sixth in the nation, while
USC, laboring under an extreme-
ly tough schedule, has disap-
pointed preseason prognosticators-
by dropping four of their first six
Notre Dame coach Ara Parse-
ghian -hopes that one factor will
make it a different story this
year - the Irish defense. Notre
Dame is number one in the nation*
this year in scoring defense, al-
lowing an average of only 3.2
points per game. They've surren-
dered only two touchdowns in

five games, and have posted shut-
outs in each of their last two
But Parseghian, who has seen
his teams fail to win in their last
four meetings with the Trojans,
losing two and tying two, must
be a bit uneasy over the per-
formance of his offense, which
has not been impressive in re-
cent games.
Much of the problem lies with
the fact that none of the Irish
quarterbacks have been able to es-
tablish themselves as a perma-
nent starter. Should the Notre
Dame offense again fail to get
itself untracked, Southern Cal
may once more have a chance to
play spoiler on the Irish season.
Elsewhere around the nation,
most of the top - ranked clubs
have apparent breathers on their
schedules for today. Number one
Nebraska meets Oklahoma State,
while second-rated Oklahoma will
take on Kansas State, in two Bigt
Eight contests.
Neither game is supposed to be1
much of a contest, but in the bal-
anced Big Eight, upsets are notI
uncommon. Nebraska in particu-
lar must watch out, for Oklahoma
State, with a respectable 3-1-1 re-
cord, possesses an especially ex-
plosive offense.
Oklahoma, fresh from beating
Southern Cal, Texas, and Colo-
rado on successive Saturdays, has

hosts I1
been averaging an awesome 517.6
offensive yards per game so far
this year, and should have little
Southeast Conference powers
Alabama and Auburn, ranked four
and five nationally, will continue
to warm up for their head-on col-
lision next month by facing Hous-
ton and Clemson, respectively.
Alabama will probably have a
tougher time protecting their un-
beaten status against Houston,
which has lost only once this
year, than will Auburn, which
should roll over the weak Clem-
son squad.
The Cougars feature an explo-
sive 'attack, but their defense is
erratic, so the Tide is favored on
the basis of their powerful Wish-
bone-T running offense. Mean-
while, the Tiger's great quarter-
back Pat Sullivan will likely have
a field day in Auburn.
In an intersectional contest,
t Penn State, number eight, will en-
tertain Texas Christian. Nittany

Lion head coach Joe Paterno's
only worry is that his team may
have problems adjusting to TCU's
Wishbone attack. However, Penn
State is still a solid two-touch-
down choice.
The final three teams in the
nation's top ten, Georgia, Arkan-
sas, and Stanford, all also have
easy times, in a week which
should not change the rankings
significantly. Georgia takes on
Southeast Conference foe Ken-
tucky, while Arkansas, coming off
a sparkling performance against
reeling Texas, is heavily favored
against North Texas State.
Stanford, which took big strides
towards the Rose Bowl the last
two Saturdays, ought to be able
to relax a little against hapless
Washington State.
Even Colorado, caught in the
frying pan last week against Ok-
lahoma, should be able to catch
their breath against Missouri be-
fore being tossed into the fire
next week at Nebraska.

Michigan's water polo teams won two out of three matches in
a Midwest Water Polo tournament last night in Matt Mann pool.
After beating Ohio State 20-5 and Michigan State 22-8, Michi-
gan lost a heart breaker to highly rated Indiana.
After trailing the Hoosiers the entire game, Paul Fairman sent
a shot into the net at 2:56 in the final period to tie the score at 8-8.
Indiana came back to score on a penalty shot at 3:37, but Fairman
again came forward for Michigan to even the score at 4:08.
However, Michigan momentarily let up after a penalty was called
against them, and Indiana whipped the ball past goalie Stu Isaac
for what proved to be the winning margin.
A combination of a tight Indiana defense and a stall allowed
the clock to run out on Michigan.
The lightning quick Hoosiers pulled out to a 5-2 lead in the
first period when they capitalized on quick passes after several errant
passes by Michigan. The Blue tankers narrowed the score to 6-4
after the second period, but Indiana scored the only goal of the
third period to take a commanding lead into the final quarter.
Chris Hansen and Steve McCarthy brought Michigan back into
contention before Fairman's heroics notched the score.
In the first game, Michigan started their second team against
Michigan State. Not getting many chances like this to prove them-
Aelves, the "B's" came out fighting, and finally broke the game open
in the second period.
Freshman John Jamerson led Michigan against State with an
outstanding performance which included seven goals.
Michigan's starters began the second game for Michigan against
Ohio State. Despite the fact that Michigan considered this game
just as a tune up for Indiana, they played an excellent game before
giving way to the second string.

Bucks to a 124-105 National Basket-

Buffalo Braves.
Smith scored 16 points and grab-
bed 12 rebounds, but couldn't stop
Jabbar in the first period when the
Bucks broke to a 38-20 lead. They
led handily thereafter.
Jabbar, the former Lew Alcindor,
scored 18 of his points in the first
quarter to spark the defending
NBA champions to their fifth vic-
tory without a loss. Buffalo is 1-4.

DETROIT - Defenseman Ron
Stackhouse payed immediate di-
vidends to his new team last night
by scoring a goal, setting up two
more and playing a fine defensive

Wings to ap.5-2 victory over the
Toronto Maple Leafs.
Stackhouse came to Detroit

Golden Seals for right wing Tom

The loss broke the Lakers' four-

Celtic star.

BALTIMORE (MP) - V e t e r a n
guards Earl "The Pearl" MonroeI
and Archie Clark walked out on
the Baltimore Bullets club last
night and were suspended without
pay, the National Basketball As-
sociation team 'said.I
In a lengthy statement compiled
just before the Bullets' game withi
the New York Knickerbockers, Ex-I
ecutive Vice President Jerry Sachs
said Monroe, who had issued an
ultimatum, was unhappy in Balti-
more and was on the trading'
Clark,. acquired only this weekJ
from Philadelphia, worked outJ
with the team Thursday but was
suspended after failing to appear'
for the game yesterday, said
Sachs, expressing embarrassment
and chagrin.
The public address announcer
at the Civic Center told the crowd
that ticketholders at the game
could redeem their stubs for com-
parable tickets for the Nov. 10
game with the Chicago Bulls.
In making his announcement,
Sachs said:
"We are embarrassed and cha-
grined by the timing of this an-
nouncement just before game time
and regret that many fans who
came to see these two great stars
perform will not be able to see
'them tonight."
Sachs went on to relate the cir-
cumstances behind the absence of
the players:
"The club had, in effect, been
given an ultimatum by Monroe,
through his attorney Larry Fleis-
cher, that Monroe would either-be
traded or that he wouldn't play
in Baltimore.
"It was agreed by management
that because of Earl's general un-
happiness in Baltimore, we would
try to accede to his wishes and
make a deal. That agreement was

made between Mr. Fleischer anc.
Mr. Abe Pollin, the club's owner,'
In the case of Clark, Sachs re-
ported that when the trade was
made with Philadelphia Monday,
sending guards Kevin Loughery
and Fred Carter to the ?6ers, Clark
asked for and was granted time
off to clear up some personal mat-
ters in Philadelphia, which neces-
sitated his missing Tuesday's night
gamein Boston.
He reported to the Bullets on
Wednesday and participated in the
team's workout Thursday at Ft.
Meade, Md. He did not show up
for Friday night's game with New
York and has been suspended
without pay, Sachs said.
